You will also have the chance to ask the educators questions. If this is the first course you’ve taken on FutureLearn, visit the How it Works page which explains all about the website’s features.

Certificate of Achievement

If you complete 90% of all of the course steps over the next four weeks, you’ll be eligible for a free Certificate of Achievement as proof of your learning and development during the course.

The Skills Builder Hub

To participate fully in the course, you’ll need to register for a Skills Builder Hub account. Registration is free and all of the resources referenced in the course are free to access.

Although we don’t look at the Hub in detail until Week 4, we’d recommend registering now, as you’ll have more time to familiarise yourself with how it works and explore all of the resources!

Join the conversation!

Now you’ve met us, we’d like to know a bit about you and give you a chance to connect with other people on the course.

Read some comments from other participants, say hello (click on ‘reply’ next to a comment) and show interest in something they wrote.

Post your own comment to tell us a bit about yourself (for example, who/where you teach), and what your expectations for this course are. Please don’t be shy – we’re looking forward to meeting you!

We hope this video helps you get to know how this course will work. You can also find more tips in the article attached at the bottom of this step.
